William "Grandpa" Perkins
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 2, 1922

WILLIAM PERKINS, known familiarly as "Grandpa" Perkins to the people of Walnut Grove and Mt.
Moriah, because of his extreme age, for he was past ninety years of age, died Sunday morning at
9:00 o'clock.
His death marks the closing of an ideal life, for he was a hale and hearty old gentleman,
up to a few days before his death and was in the habit of walking a long distance each day to
keep up his exercise. He was making his home with Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Dooley at Mt. Moriah at
the time of his death.
He is survived by several children, among whom are John, Howard, Tom and Wilson Perkins
and Mrs. Jose Hamilton of Dorrisville. His wife died several years ago. Mr. Perkins has always
been a farmer and his sons are farmers.
Funeral services were held this afternoon at Butler cemetery, followed by interment there.
